In this paper several edge detection methods in color images have been decribed: those using monochromatic image detectors as well as those operating on specific color image features. The paper presents a new algorithm using perception function that can be applied to edge detection in color images. The algorithm involves transforming the image into the perception function which then allows applying the Canny/Deriche algorithm in the edge detection process.
